One Flea Spare Project

In a joint project with students from Fordham University, Georgetown University, Purchase College, and UMass-Amherst, students will create a virtual new media response to Naomi Wallace’ play One Flea Spare. This story about strangers quarantining together during London’s 17th Century Great Plague, will provoke our wild artistic departure about our own communities’ social iniquities, abuses of power, classism, racism, burden on essential workers, fake science, and questions about who can afford to survive a plague and the boundaries of gender and the body. Absolutely no theatre or performance experience necessary, just a desire to be creative.
